The Honda Civic is one of the most popular cars on the road today. This compact, economical platform has been known for its reliability, great gas mileage, and low cost to own. There are a ton of different models available, from the Honda Civic Hybrid, designed to give drivers the most MPG possible, to the record-holding Honda Civic Type R that was developed to dominate the racetrack.

Drivers around the world love the Honda Civic for its reliability and low cost, but sometimes the cost-cutting measures show when driving down the road. Honda invests less in sound deadening materials than higher-end brands like BMW or Mercedes-Benz. This keeps costs low but can sometimes result in additional rattles or noise in the cabin.

If you're one of the Honda Civic owners that are tired of having a loud drive to work, then you've found the perfect place to fix your issue! Let's get into the BEST ways that you can reduce road noise, tire noise, engine noise, and more, so you can get back to enjoying any drive in your Honda Civic!

Honda Civic Cabin Noise Reduction Treatment

Let's face it, most Honda Civics are used as daily drivers. This means that if you own one, you probably spend a lot of time behind the wheel. If you’re on this page concerned about road noise or tire noise in your Civic, you probably want your time spent in your car to be quiet and comfortable, right?

Honda may not have been able to supply you with the quietest ride, but that's where we come in. If you want the absolute best possible noise reduction treatment for your Honda Civic, then look no further than our Mid-Size Car Vehicle Package. We specifically developed this noise treatment kit to reduce both structural noises and airborne noises within mid-size sedans. This is the easiest, highest-quality, and cost-effective way to reduce the noise in your Civic by 10-15 dB when driving one the highway.

Inside the Mid-Size Sedan Vehicle Package, you'll find two of our most popular products, Damplifier Pro and Luxury Liner Pro. The combination of both of these products results in the best noise reduction in the industry and will last the entire lifetime of your Honda Civic!

What Is Damplifier Pro?

Damplifier Pro is the best-performing sound deadening mat on the market, and has been since 2004. A lot of the noise that you might be hearing in your Honda Civic is coming from vibrations from the metal parts of your car. We refer to these noises as "structural", because the movement and energy in the physical structure is being released into the cabin as unwanted noise. Damplifier Pro solves these vibration issues by deadening the vibrations caused by these metal components. You can apply Damplifier Pro to sound deaden a trunk, floor, doors, hood – anything metal in your vehicle!

The best part? You only need about 60% coverage to hear a massive difference in the noise level within your Civic. This means less install time and less cost. Many people choose to do 100% coverage though to max out the noise reduction and also reduce thermal transfer.

What Is Luxury Liner Pro?

Luxury Liner Pro MLV is our best performing automotive sound barrier. Think of it as an extra wall that you are installing between the sources of airborne noise and the cabin of your Honda Civic. This additional barrier blocks engine, tire, and road noise, (which are all airborne noises) by enhancing the barrier between you and the noise. You're going to want to get as close to 100% coverage as possible. The better your coverage, the less noise you'll hear. That's because airborne noise will “leak” through any openings you leave. Luxury Liner Pro is the ultimate way to stop all of this unwanted airborne noise.

We've taken the liberty of combining both of these products into one package that's easy to install and that we know will make a massive difference in the noise level within your Civic. Look up our Vehicle Build Packages, and get the Mid-Size Car Package for your Honda Civic.

How to reduce Honda Civic Tire Noise

Sometimes most of the noises you hear in your Honda Civic come from your tires. The best way to reduce tire noise in your Honda Civic is to install Spectrum Liquid Deadener. This is designed to be sprayed or brushed into your wheel wells. All you need to do is apply 3mm of Spectrum into each wheel well (applied as 1mm layers – 3 total layers) directly to the metal. For 4 wheel wells, we recommend purchasing 2 gallons of Spectrum Liquid Deadener.

You'll hear a massive difference in the amount of tire noise that's coming through to your cabin.
No need to remove interior panels or cut up mats, simply spray or brush the liquid deadener on the metal and enjoy the quiet ride. Spectrum liquid deadener is even waterproof and protects against rust!
